Milwaukee M12 Thermal Imager 2258- Review
Milwaukee M12 Thermal Imager 2258-21 Applications
- Checking electrical connections and spotting future failures. Whether it’s a loose connection, faulty devise, or any of the vast multiple electrical connections. When resistances increases, connections will heat up and quite often fail.
- Low voltage fixtures often require assembly and many of the connections often fail due to human error. The instructions often say to wait 15 minutes and feel for heat. With an imager, you can see the connections and whether or not they need adjusting quicker and more accurately.
- More and more homes tend to have radiant heat in the floors. How do you know where you are drilling or cutting doesn’t have a heat line in the floor or wall? Using this tool you can see exactly where they are. It could be because my most recent projects have included floor outlets, but this tool has been a life savor for me. A few years ago I would of had to pass on a project like this.
